Chicago rapper Chief Keef is experiencing a tough week as new reports claim he will have some free time this weekend as police have nixed a concert. #BadNews
According to reports, security concerns have forced law enforcement to cancel his Olympic Theater show in Cicero tomorrow (June 14).
Police Superintendent Bernard Harrison has confirmed his force fears Keef's presence at the venue could spark violence. He tells the Chicago Tribune, "We have indications from intelligence sources that there were going to be problems and there have been many problems at his concerts in other places. I spoke to the director of the theater myself and asked if he could cancel the concert. He complied with my request." (Contact Music)
While he did not deny unexpected eviction reports, Keef hardly served up an explanation for his situation earlier this week.
Chief Keef says back rent was not the trigger for his eviction ... he tells us he was booted from his apartment because his neighbors just didn't like him. TMZ previously reported ... Keef was evicted from his unit in Highland Park, Illinois Tuesday. Sheriff's deputies escorted him out, and there were reports he owed $11,300 in back rent. But our photog spotted a self-professed "turnt up" Keef in West Hollywood hours after the eviction ... and he says it's not about money ... it's because, "I'm too bad, I guess I'm a bad little young boy, I gotta go."

Details of Keef's eviction emerged across the Internet Tuesday (June 10).
The South Side rapper, whose legal name is Keith Cozart, was evicted Tuesday from his rented mansion in Highland Park, police said. It's the latest in a long list of legal troubles for Cozart -- though a criminal investigation connected to him in another North Shore community has been closed, authorities said Tuesday. Movers carried Cozart's belongings out of the custom two-story brick home to a moving truck as Lake County Sheriff's deputies looked on. The owner of the house, Bal Bansal, said Cozart, 18, had been a good tenant and his departure was voluntary, but police confirmed it was an eviction. (Chicago Tribune)
Despite the seriousness, Keef hinted at having a new home on Twitter.
"Wait till y'all see my House tho!," Keef tweeted June 10. (Chief Keef's Twitter)
